Yes, that's what I meant.

I chose to implement both ctor and dtor in 'group_premium_pdf_gen.cpp'
(committed 20150826T1233Z, revision 6262). This way, they're both
certainly in 'group_premium_pdf_gen.o' and nowhere else. As you point
out, there's little to choose between this way and writing both inline
in this case.
